Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burlington District Curriculum
The standards in Language Arts are designed to support a standard of literacy across the curriculum. Students begin with phonics, word recognition, vocabulary building skills and many writing exercises. In middle school, students deepen their abilities in these areas so that by high school, the focus shifts to reading and analyzing literature, writing, critical thinking, and vocabulary development.
The framework for math scaffolds students experience through learning about numbers, measurements, patterns, reading graphs and charts, and developing their overall mathematic literacy. This provides the foundation for the more advanced work in high school level algebra, geometry, statistics or calculus. Being able to communicate mathematic understanding and reasoning is also a central goal of the curriculum. As students develop mastery in all these areas, they are also expected to look at a problem and determine the best way to solve it.

- Technology and Creativity - One teacher at Hamlet Middle School embraced the use of mobile phone applications to engage a class of seventh and eighth grade learners. The QR code, also known as Quick Response Code was originally invented to track parts in vehicle manufacturing. The code is a series of squares that a computer application recognizes. Once the code was explained to the students, students were introduced to an on-line company called Visualead. Visualead allows students to create their own QR codes. Students were learning and having fun while using their mobile devices for something other than texting and listening to music.
- Give Five - Read Five - Research shows students that read four or five books over the summer helps prevent the loss of essential literacy skills.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.
